Are Two Wires Required to Install the Clear Utility Light # 507-12 on a Trailer


I just received this light. There is only one black wire coming from the light. Should there be two wires, or is the one black wire correct? Thanks!

No, there should only be one wire coming out of the Clear Utility Light, item # 507-12. There is another wire inside that light, see photo at right, that is attached to the mounting hardware for grounding the light. This requires that the light be mounted to a surface that is a good ground.

If your mounting location does not provide a sufficient ground you can use a jumper wire to ground the mounting hardware to a good ground on the trailer or vehicle.
